Google's big push towards better services and hardware, to take on the likes of Apple continues. The Software giant, who is busy with Google I/O 2013, is ready to unleash the next-generation Nexus 4. The buzz on the street is that Google has already appointed LG to make Nexus 5.
Well, it's too early to see the first look of the device getting stripped at Google I/O. Initially, one could see a modified version of Nexus 4 with 4G LTE at the same very event. 4G LTE is getting quite popular in countries such as US and UK. The fourth generation mobile phone telephony standard is faster than its processor 3G.
In the US, most of the handset now comes with 4G LTE branding, while the Nexus 4 was launched without 4G LTE. Despite being a non -4G LTE handset, it succeeded easily in the retail. The rumors of coming up of 4G LTE Nexus 4 are still circulating on the internet.
To make this news even more authentic, the first batch of evidence has started appearing. U.K based retailers - Carphone Warehouse and Phones4u have stopped selling Nexus 4 ahead of upcoming developers' conference organized by Google (via Android Headlines).
Meanwhile, CNET also checked whether U.S based retailers have also started to discontinue sale of Nexus 4, while looking at Best Buy's site, an error was found. The designated Nexus 4 page was unable to load. It is believed that Google had planned to announce Nexus 5 along with the upcoming version of Android - Key Lime Pie at Google I/O 2013.
With Google's own Motorola X is still in a prototype phase; it doesn't make any sense to ignore you're in-house company, and give a chance to LG to go ahead with Nexus 5 so early. It seems Google wanted Motorola X phone to have a grand launch. The device could be announced later this year or early next year. Stay tuned to GizBot.
